I agree, its bad but it isn't THAT bad. He was trying to give a heartfelt performance and it got a little out of hand.

don't you think its weird that their was no expected "space" segment? Leads me to believe Jerry and the guys sensed that something was up and went on stage to get into GDTRFB

Just guessing...

I think Brent hijacked what should have been Drums>Space. Jerry, Phil and Bob walked off stage as expected, but Brent stayed behind. The other guys may not of even known if they went to individual dresing rooms. The drummers had to do the best with what they were dealt.

When Jerry, Phil and Bob return for Space the probably don't know what to do. They don't want to step on Brent's toes - maybe he can get it together. Eventually they go into the song that would have come out of Space.

I take it as an experiment(by Brent) gone bad.

I think an interesting question is why Brent did this. Is it just that Brent is on something? Was he frustrated with the lack of minutes he was getting in the band?
